    This haunting drama of vengeance and forgiveness crowns the group of tragicomic romances that Shakespeare composed at the end of his career. Sometimes read as his farewell to the stage, the play contains some of Shakespeare's most lyrical verse. Prospero, wise Duke of Milan, has been deposed by Antonio, his wicked brother, and exiled with his daughter Miranda to a mysterious island. But Prospero possesses supernatural powers. Aided by the spirit Ariel, Prospero uses his magical art to bring his enemies under his control.

    Four friends. One block of land. No power tools. 'One day,' Philip said, 'I'd like to build something bigger.... Like a house. We could just buy a block of land, you know, the four of us, and have a go.' It was just an idea. Then it started to take shape. In this frank, funny and thought-provoking memoir, Richard Glover describes how he and his friend, Philip, and their partners built a house in the bush on weekends.

    A gloriously mad desert island romp - complete with zombies, walrus pirates and a talking goldfish called Albie. Like Robinson Crusoe on acid, it follows the adventures of Isaac, a shipwrecked sailor whose boat is sunk by a excess of radio sound effects and is then washed up in a tropical paradise where warring tribes compete to pay homage to a giant sea beast called Gary. A fast-paced gag fest which is a splendid mix of music hall and surreal nonsense, which is fresh, intriguing and laugh-out-loud funny.

    A mother who invented her past, a father who was often absent, a son who wondered if this could really be his family...Richard Glover's favourite dinner-party game is called 'Who's Got the Weirdest Parents?' It's a game he always thinks he'll win. There was his mother, a deluded snob who made up large swathes of her past and who ran away with Richard's English teacher, a Tolkien devotee, nudist and stuffed toy collector.
